My self-summary
Words time! My name is Nick by the way, so I don't have to keep forgetting to introduce myself to people and then remembering way past the point where its proper =p

Where to begin? Video games are pretty much one of the most central things in my life. The design of them, the stories, how everything comes together into one cohesive interactive whole. Its been something I've been obsessed with for most of my life XD Hoping to one day be a designer. And yes, I know that the job won't be a walk in the park and will probably be hellish, but its still my passion and its still something I want to do.

My favorite genre of games is the RPG (specifically of the J variety, though I've enjoyed some W's, and all manner in between of A's and S's and even some MMO's (if you understood all that, grats! We'll get along swell, you and I!)) I'm also a huge fan of Fighting games, and consider myself well-versed in competitive terms and know my way around intricacies and details of the genre. Though my skills don't at all match my knowledge, sad to say XD

Also, anime! Though not as big a thing to me as games, I've enjoyed quite a few of these crazy shows and movies. I've also gone to a few conventions and even cosplayed some! Mainly have been to ACen over in Chicago, but definitely looking to expand my convention-going when I'm able.

Outside of that? I'm friendly, I love hanging out with people, and I make tons and tons of lame jokes. If you can't handle lame humor with the occasional funny thing, then you might find me obnoxious or unbearable lol. I try my best to make people laugh and dry to dredge up something hopefully resembling wit with my words =D

I just moved to New York from Chicago, and things are kinda hectic for me right now, but I'd like to start getting to know people in the area and, when things are a little less hectic, maybe meet up with people for hangouts/dates?

I think this is enough for me to put on here for now. Don't think I elaborated enough? Care to know more? Voice your opinions and questions in my message box and I'll most likely respond with the answers you seek =p
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, still living with my parents, helping them out here with the move and then I dunno what. At the moment unemployed, finally leaving my awful retail job when I moved and hoping to find something better over here that'll pay more and let me live on my own.
I’m really good at
Being incredibly lame. Seriously, that's my best skill.

Oh, you mean when I'm not being lame? Well, I consider myself a good friend and a good listener, eye contact and all. I'm also fairly good at a number of games, though nowhere near godlike. Also, tripping over thin air and randomly loosing my balance and other general acts of klutzyness are very much a part of my skill portfolio XD
The first things people usually notice about me
Not gonna lie, kind of a big guy. I try my best to be decent looking, but my looks aren't the best part about me IMO.

Outside of looks, I crack jokes a lot, I talk with my hands a good amount (part of the Italian in me. The blood, not what I ate the other night), and I laugh a lot. I've been told I have a nice voice? I dunno, that's something for you to decide XD
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've read way too few, but I do plan to read more when I get the chance. Ones I have read and loved are: Holes, The Hobbit and the LOTR Trilogy, Catcher in the Rye, and The Great Gatsby. As for manga, my absolute favorite is Fullmetal Alchemist, with a really close runner up at the moment (now that I've recently gotten into it) being One Piece. Yes, that One Piece. Sooooo good. Death Note is also awesome. I unfortunately haven't read much manga either XD

Comics: I'll add this into here since I'm a super huge fan of Scott Pilgrim and Homestuck. So if you wanna talk about how awesome it would be if people exploded into coins or who your favorite kids and trolls are, you've found a buddy =D

Movies: I'm not a big movie buff, but I've still seen a good few. Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is by far my favorite movie of all time. Outside of that, I love old Disney movies, Pixar movies, and a bunch of animated stuff as well as a good few awesome stuff both old and new(ish)!

Shows: I admit, I'm a huge fan of sitcoms. At least the ones from the 90's and early 2000's. Its sort of a guilty pleasure of mine XD Especially the old, family-friendly ones like Fresh Prince and Family Matters. I also recently(ish) discovered (thanks to Nick@Nite) the amazingness that is The Nanny XD Outside of those, I love cartoons and anime and stuff. Though I don't really watch much TV anymore.

Music: Mostly J-Pop/J-Rock and video game music. Yes I am that much of a nerd. Its mostly cuz I don't go out of my way to listen to music, so what I like and listen to is what I end up hearing normally. In other words, music from video games and from anime XD Though outside of that, my tastes are pretty broad, and I generally like anything good, with preferences towards rock and against R&B and rap.

Food: Pizza. Seriously, that is all.

Well, I guess I'll add sweet things like cake and ice cream, and pretty much anything Italian like pasta and lasagna, but I can seriously live off of just pizza.
Six things I could never do without
1. My friends.
2. Video games
3. The internet
4. An MP3 player
5. Good stories
6. Anime
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Crazy story ideas and game ideas, the world in general, crazy things my friends have done/are doing. Life as a whole really. Sometimes I think too much, but I deal with it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with my friends doing crazy things, or just chilling at home watching some TV, playing some games, surfing the internet, or all of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually still a virgin. Partly cuz all but one of my relationships never progressed to the point where sex was a thing to consider (at least IMO) and partly cuz I believe in abstinence. Its a thing I picked up from being raised as a Christian, and despite no longer really being religious, I still choose to stick with this one thing. Not cuz I think its evil or that I think I'll get STD's and ruin my life. Simply cuz I'm this super romantic sap who wants to save himself for the woman he marries >_< Think of that what you will, but rest assured that I won't try to get into anyone's pants. Nor will I let them into mine. Not unless she's that special girl and its the honeymoon anyway =p
You should message me if
If you love video games or anime
If you're a Homestuck fan (always looking to freak out about the latest update!)
If you just want someone to talk to or hang out with
If you found my profile not too lame
If you found my profile more than lame enough, and you're into that or something
If, somehow, I made you laugh with all these words

You know what, just message me anyway if you're even slightly interested. I love getting to know new people =D
The two of us
